Title: GnuTLS: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201310-18)
Date: October 28, 2013
Bug(s): #455560, #471788
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GnuTLS, the worst
of which could lead to Denial of Service.
GnuTLS is an Open Source implementation of the TLS 1.2 and SSL 3.0
Vulnerable: < 2.12.23-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.12.23-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GnuTLS. Please review
the CVE identifiers and Lucky Thirteen research paper referenced below
A remote attacker could sent a specially crafted packet to cause a
Denial of Service condition. Additionally, a remote attacker could
perform man-in-the-middle attacks to recover plaintext data.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GnuTLS users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/gnutls-2.12.23-r1"
